Would love to see how it is done by Obuchon. I always have to laugh if someone claims the restaurant is done by a late chef.

I have not heard of this brand but there’s another brochure in the room advertising a 1h45m facial using this brand for 1100€…and a “customized skin care” range for 3500€. The facial better take at least 10 years of ageing off my face!

I didn’t see them in the fridge.
enjoy your stay

by the way, got a reply from FS GV after a second reminder 2 weeks after the first one.
they asked when they can call me.
I replied « whenever you want »
Got a reply one week later saying that they’ll call me .. in one week i.e this week

By the time I’ll receive a call, I’ll need the face mask to look the same than today 😀

Reminds me of that one time I looked up what a full-size bottle of the beauty products they give you in the LX F amenity kit give you costs...

Found them at the Burger homepage (heared about this brand by the way). Considering they claim 195 CHF for this package it seems to be a bargain at Cap Ferrat
https://www.drburgener.com/e-boutiqu...les/__trashed/

P.S. Shipping is only 25 CHF. I guess it´s brought by Rudolph the reindeer or Bugs Bunny in person, depending on season.....

Four Seasons Minneapolis has announced an opening of June 1, 2022. Their publicity is stressing wanting the (local) community to gather there.

Why isn't there a dedicated Four Seasons forum? The brand is growing significantly. I know there is no real loyalty program but it would be great to have a forum with individual threads for specific hotels.

Staying at Four Seasons New Orleans soon and will post a review. I wanted to stay at Four Seasons Austin for an upcoming trip but room rates look too pricey.

I have to be in Minneapolis for one night in August and have a booking at the Canopy. No real plans except catch the Red Sox v Twins game. I see you’re local, should I opt for this new Four Seasons? I know zero about the city - we have to be in Wisconsin so are flying in/out of MSP and it so happens my Sox are in town the day we were to leave so I’m extending the trip a night. Can find very little about the hotel online - it’s site is barebones.

I expect the new FS to be a game changer in the Twin Cities. IMO, we have a number of good, even very good, hotels, but no great ones. The building itself is beautiful, although I have not been inside, and it's location is excellent. They opened reservations for the adored-local-chef-owned restaurant on Monday and the demand was so great that it crashed the site. Oops. The menus for Mara are now posted and I'm excited to try it. It's hard to say how the hotel opening will go with the ongoing staffing and supply issues detailed in many posts in this forum. The current price point seems reasonable, and if I were coming in from out of town, I'd stay there in a heartbeat!

Just finished up third night at Four Seasons New Orleans

Pros
- Great room, as always; excellent bed, typical chez seat at foot of the bed, well laid out bathroom with double sinks and nice shower, nice table and two chairs for room service, giant TV, etc. Typical Four Seasons
- Cool bars, including lively lobby Chandelier bar. Seems like this bar is a destination for locals and tourists. Good people watching.
- Highlight of the physical property may be the pool - great pool with nice chairs, good water, etc. Great for kids, couples, partiers, etc
- In terms of "CBD", well located near casino, riverwalk, convention center. About a 18 minute walk to French Quarter / Bourbon Street, which works well for me
- Great room service quality and timeliness, room service staff is really good
- Huge gym
- Did not try spa services (as of yet), but was encouraged to try "Southern Gentleman" massage at $495 for 100 minutes (I am not sure if I have time)

Cons
- You can tell there are still some growing pains in terms of getting everything staffed. Pool area was packed, and the staff there seemed a bit inexperienced in terms of serving everyone, getting drinks and towels out, etc. Hotel seems pretty full this weekend.
- Similarly gym did not have towels and water when I first arrived - about 20 people in the gym were parched for a while
- Food and beverage is pretty expensive, but not suprising obviously


Conclusion
- As long as price is right I don't see why I would stay anywhere else in New Orleans (though I am checking out Virgin Hotel for party tonight, I hear good things)

Had dinner in the Donald Link place a couple of weeks ago. We had a great meal overlooking the river. Hotel looks great although twice the price of everything else in town. I am sure it is the best place in town but I still love the huge, but slightly dated, suites at the Windsor Court. I am not in my room a ton while in Nola so FS may be a little pricey for what I need.

We love 4S Surfside - one of our favorite properties of the brand. Phenomenal build quality, superlative service, and wonderful food.

On a whim we tried the new Fort Lauderdale hotel this weekend. Daily rates are about half as much for a comparable room, which is nice, but it cannot hold a candle to Surfside in our humble opinion.

Poor layout, poor build quality, inferior views, inferior dining options, and the cheapest poolside landscaping with palms that look like they were acquired at Home Depot.

FLL will be a one and done for us. Surfside is worth the splurge.

4S Paris is now over 2k for a regular room, does FT still think this is worth it?
